Atari Juguar (JAG)

The Atari Jaguar is a video game console released in November 1993 by Atari. At one time, it was a powerful platform for the next (fifth in a row) generation of television game consoles. It went on sale for $249.99. It was advertised as "the first 64-bit system", which was an advertising ploy - the CPU and GPU of the set-top box had a RISC-like 32-bit architecture, the "Tom" graphics coprocessor was 64-bit.

However, a limited number of games were released for the console, most of which were of poor quality, which negatively affected sales of the console. The reasons for the failure also include an unsuccessfully chosen media (cartridge), an inconvenient joystick and pricing policy. Competition with other consoles, especially those using CDs like the PlayStation, doomed the Atari Jaguar to failure. Between the end of 1993 and the end of 1995, only 125,000 copies were sold.

Although the manufacturer attempted to attract consumer interest in the console by hastily releasing an Atari Jaguar CD adapter, a Memory Track game state device, and a JagLink dual console gamer, these actions failed to increase sales. Having suffered serious losses, Atari was forced to leave the game console market.
